Dr. Janet Alvarez Gonzalez is hoping to raise 3 additional million dollars for the film “The Portrait’s Secret”
Texan filmmaker Dr. Janet Alvarez Gonzalez already has gone in an unorthodox direction to get her film “The Portrait’s Secret”, made. Initially the film was going to be in Spanish language, and was going to be film in the Caribbean and South America, but many unpredictable challenges made the executive producer change her mind and made radical changes to the production “The Portrait’s Secret”.
She recently changed her plans, moving the production from the State of Louisiana to Texas, only few scenes will be film in the Caribbean. According to Dr. Alvarez Gonzalez filming in American soil gives any investor the ability to deduct 100% of the money they invest in that same year for production costs up to $15 million dollars and possibly as much as $20 million dollars.
The good news is that as part of the last minute “Fiscal Cliff” deal, Section 181 has been renewed for 2013, which means that investors have a federal incentive to put money into a project, in addition to the various state rebates incentives such as The State of Texas who offers a 20% tax rebate on qualified direct production Texas expenditures. Therefore I need to produce “The Portrait’s Secret” this year, Dr. Alvarez Gonzalez explained enthusiastic.
Without being filmed, “The Portrait’s Secret” has been reviewed in New York, Miami, Dallas, Spain, Chile, Argentina, Turkey, China, Panama, Venezuela, Mexico, and Japan. Alvarez Gonzalez is planning to include several Academy Awarded winning actors from Hollywood; she is also including some of the production team from the film “The Portrait’s Secret” into “An Anonymous Prisoner in Egypt”.
According to Alba Vanderbilt the distribution is in place for all media in America: from Canada to Argentina with Distrimax and Gussy Films. Distrimax is a well-known, reputable film distributor, working with major international distribution companies such as Lions Gate.

The Portrait’s Secret also has the special participation of Eduardo Paxeco, Julian Acosta, Hemky Maderas, Carlos Carrasco, Carolyn Zeller, Enrique Castillo, Denise Blasor, Roberto Urbina and other international actors from 19 different countries.
